Snowshoeing at Mt. Rainier

Mt. Rainier Snowshoeing

Yesterday, Jamie, Kevin and I made our first snowshoeing outing of the season. We headed to Mt. Rainier with the high hopes of taking on Mazama Ridge. However, after getting a little bit into our trek we realized that the way we were looking to head was not really passable with all of the snow. Instead we stayed in the large area above Paradise. All of us took quite a few photos which you can take a look at enjoy. Also, below is the path that we took yesterday. As you can see we don’t really follow much of the summer hiking trails, but with all the snow, it’s almost like there needs to be a separate map for the winter.
